Blue paint in residential and commercial projects has never really been a niche colour. It is timeless and has always had mass appeal. Whereas some other colours tend to mostly be used as accent features, blue paint operates as both accent and full room features.

Blue paint is a colour we love to work with and see clients use! Clients tend to be interested in using it for interior commercial and residential projects. It seems to have the same effect on them as it does on us. When looking at it or talking about blue, there is always a smile and positive energy. We think this is because blue is so prominent in nature with things we associate with positivity and happiness including the sky, water and the ocean.  Hence, we love looking at all the options of blue paint with clients to find the hue that makes them the happiest!

We will cover blue paints over the next month, selecting a wide variety of blue hues to show you.

Some Benefits of using blue in Residential and Commercial Projects:

  • Blue encourages clarity, increased intuition, and pureness. Blue has an immediate effect of being welcoming in both commercial and residential spaces.
  • Blue is the color of the sea and the sky. Hues such as Sky Blue & Aegean Teal can provide residential and commercial spaces with both a sense of calm and inspiration. These hues can also give the impression that the space is bigger
    than it is. Blue reflects light instead of absorbing it.

  • Pale blues such as Powder Blue and French Blue are not only reminiscent of the sea and sky but of traditional French Provencal houses. Hence, choosing these shades can create an atmosphere of French nostalgia and old-world comfort.
  • Blues such as French Moire, Tranquility and Mediterranean Sky is an ideal fit for promoting serenity and culinary inspiration in a residential or commercial kitchen. A combination of blue hues on walls and cabinets or white walls and blue cabinets are an awe inspiring contrast with white marble tops and splash backs.

  • Blue can have positive effects on one’s health. Its conducive to mental health by making one feel centered, serene and relaxed. It also has a mind cleansing effect. It is known to lower blood pressure and help promote steady breathing.
  • Dark blues such as Navy Blue are bold and powerful. They tend to work very well with contrasting bright colours in decorations such as bright yellows or greens. The more windows in the space, the more the contrasting effect will come to life.

  • Dark blue hues are also aided by warm colours (brown, yellow, pink) wood grains (via flooring and wall features) and natural materials.
  • Shades of blue such as oasis spring and Amalfi are sensational in both residential and commercial bathrooms/shower rooms. Adding degrees of blue to the walls and cabinet work can help to excel the calmness within blue. Hence, it aids towards destressing and unwinding during a shower/bath/spa.
